Hiya red dahlia
Just a passionate plantsman. Like to grow,things as well as possible. Used to propagate and sell plants as a hobby though.
So, you're in competition with your mum.,!!
Italophile is the tomato guru here. To assist ripening I do remove leaves,progressively throughout the summer until almost every leaf had gone two weeks ago. ,just tomatoes ripening very fast on bare stems now. Any yellowing leaves should be removed...they no longer perform,any function. Thereafter I remove leaves covering any trusses and then any,leaves below trusses. I keep foliage absolutely dry ...except for the occasional feed or tonic spray. and I try not to overwater too
